If you've come looking for lowered expectations, this is not the place. Chris Broussard talked to Joe Johnson and the Nets' 6'8" shooting guard didn't back down about the Nets' chances this season, saying the team is the best he has played for and capable of winning it all.

Saying the Nets are the best team he's played for is heady stuff. This is a guy who played with Steve Nash, Amare Stoudemire and Shawn Marion in their prime in Phoenix. As for the championship projections, this is not a guy, as Broussard notes, who is given to exaggeration.
